Youth sports expert to appear in Kearney

Speaker John O'Sullivan
Noted speaker and best-selling author John O’Sullivan, founder of The Changing The Game Project will be in Kearney to discuss disturbing trends in youth sports across the country and how parents and coaches can not only improve the culture, but actually improve player performance as well. Volunteer coaches, school coaches and administration, parents, and students are invited to attend.
Please REGISTER TO ATTEND so that we can assure seating, as well as send you a reminder. 

O'Sullivan founded The Changing The Game Project in 2012 after two decades as a soccer player and coach on the youth, high school, college and professional level. He tells parents that a child's state of mind will determine how well they perform, and encourages coaches and parents to focus on effort more so than outcome. This will help them as they progress and play at higher levels.

"The best players play with freedom," O’Sullivan says. "They play without fear and they are not afraid of making errors. They can play up to their potential."


The talk will be held at the Merryman Performing Arts Center, 225 West 22 Street in Kearney on Wednesday, November 11. O’Sullivan will offer two sessions:


  • Coaches and administrators from 5-6:30pm
  • Parents and the general public from 7-8:30pm
